Just when is mine safety ever going to be improved in Ukraine?

Back in 2004 31 miners died in a methane blast and the year before some 80 miners died. This must bring the number of deaths well over 4000 since Ukraine's independence.

That's a tough one, Vasyl!

It looks like mine safety will not improve until the last miner dies.

Yes.. unfortunately the oligarchs pillage the country.. and they turn the government for assistance for the family of the dead... Bastards...

Taras, you are right.. The bloody oligarchs pillage the country, and when some disaster like this happens the have the miners request support for the survivors... from the government. Bastards!

"Kill the miners, bill the taxpayers." That's the business model.
